[resolved] Tags in post go to 404 page (6 posts)

    when you click a tag in a post it goes to 404 not found, I've searched all over this site and cant find an answer. I use permalinks /%postname% .html. I have category in category and tag in tag fields. I have updated my .htaccess according to WP.

    IndexIgnore .htaccess */.??* *~ *# */HEADER* */README* */_vti*

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /wordpress/
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /wordpress/index.php [L]
    I am using border.px theme with relatively few plugins. I do not have a tag cloud in my sidebar...

    when a tag is clicked it shows the address in the address bar as http://www.mysite/tag/whatever and the 404 response.

    It is probable something very simple but I just cannot find it, I have been looking for a week now.

    Are the other permalinks working?
    Because your blog is not set up like this:
    (according to the htaccess)

    Yes they are, sorry I left out the wordpress folder.
    when clicked they do come up as mysite.com/wordpress/tag/whatever

    As you can see I am new to wordpress as i even left the default folder "wordpress" instead of something different, however i am not new to web sites or php. I am not great at it but I get by.

    I should add that under settings the url is set to mysite.com/wordpress

    and Blog url is the same as the wordpress address.

    Does it work if you switch to the default or classic theme?

    Yes it does !!!! I was thinking of trying that :( but didn't, so it is related to the theme then, too bad I did like the theme, but I'd rather have the tags work :), maybe i will just mod the default theme.

    Thanks for the quick replies
